Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

LAST month, I was for­tu­nate to be able to while away some time by the side of the emer­ald-tiled pool at the Gov­er­nor’s Res­i­dence in Yan­gon, Myan­mar [Burma]. On a ta­ble by the pool deck, sur­rounded by or­chids, palms and crinum lilies of Brob­d­ing­na­gian pro­por­tions, I came upon this copy of COUN­TRY LIFE. I noted two pieces within that re­ferred to trop­i­cal veg­e­ta­tion in your neck of the woods: the camel­lias at Chatsworth and the palms of eastern Ire­land.
